Pinkinic 2023

Rainbow Blades attended Sheffield’s largest Pride event, Pinknic, on July 15th.

After leading the unity march through the City Centre, we had a busy day on our stall with around 200 people visiting us to talk to us about LGBTQ+ inclusion in football, the work that we do with the football club, and to take away stickers, sweets and various other freebies we had to give away.

A highlight of the day was undoubtedly when two Ellie Wilson super-fans got a surprise welcome from Ellie herself in the afternoon, taking home a signed photo of Ellie from her time at Sheffield United and some incredible memories as well.

Another young fan won a Rainbow Laces warm-up shirt signed by the 2022/23 men’s first-team after winning our keepy-uppy competition and, despite the best efforts of the weather to put a dampener on things, it was a fabulous day with plenty of meaningful discussions and positivity from the people of Sheffield to encourage us going forwards.
